Whites MX Sport Waterproof Metal Detector


Recommended Posts

Mike Hillis spotted an ad for an apparently waterproof Whites MX - perhaps an MXT variant?

 

NOTE ADDED 7/23/16 - this thread started before the MX Sport was released and is loaded with great information about the detector. However, once released problems developed. Please read the thread at http://www.detectorprospector.com/forum/topic/2307-new-archive-for-whites-mx-sport-threads/ for some of the latest information related to firmware and hardware problems with the MX Sport.

Has two optional interchangeable search coils which are just MXT coils with a special connector plus the new coil that comes stock on the unit. It uses waterproof headphones via a special connector plus has an adapter that allows for use of regular headphones. There is a waterproof speaker for above water use.

Looks like it would give the AT Pro a run for it's money. I like the water proof feature on a light, mid-freq. VLF. Makes it more versatile.

I've never owned a MXT. They seem to have a loyal following among the coin shooters. Nice looking unit.

The MXT is a fabulous detector for sure. I only sold mine and went to the F75 (same engineer involved in both) because of the weight. White's MXT Pro comes in at 4.3 lbs. This unit at 4.23 lbs while still heavier than the F75 it is a slight improvement over the MXT Pro and waterproof also. The real question will be performance. If it really has MXT like performance and with extra features, this machine would in effect replace the MXT Pro. Except for price, why go for a heavier detector with fewer features?

Looking at the specs and reading the manual I think White's has a winner here for sure. It appears to have all the features of the MXT along with a lot of extra ones. The construction has a real solid look about it also. I like it.

In real life the screen will look very similar to the White's Treasuremaster but with more target id segments...

      Why buying all this fancy detector equipment if a simple $230 ML Go-Find 66 and an airline ticket to this elusive island can make you rich beyond imagination. Very entertaining. But real?....;)

      I just watched a few of these videos.  Has anyone else watched any of them?
      I don't know what to think!

      Hi there,
      My latest video is online. It's about one of the most experienced and successful gold prospectors of Switzerland. He talks about how he discovered a new gold region in the 90ties and of course about the awesome Nuggets, he found there. Some of them with extraordinary beautiful crystalline structures. I hope you enjoy it...

      Hi everybody. I’ve gotten quite a few emails lately about getting kids involved with metal detecting. My answer has been YES! Many of you have followed River and my adventures lately and he has come up with some incredible stuff. He is 14, and was painfully addicted to video games! Now he is out of his mind about metal detecting, and would actually rather do that. And I get to be “cool” a little while longer. Here we are doing our thing at a great site we’ve been exploring for the last Month.

      Hi everybody! River and I just finished part 2 of our video documenting our finds at this site in the mountains. So..here it is! Hope you like it and can help ID some of these pieces.

      Hi everybody! The artifacts we are now detecting have been truly incredible so we are putting together a 3 part series on this site to share them with anyone who is interested! We could use some help ID’ing a couple things and we hope you love seeing these things as much as we loved finding them!
      Heres Part 1
